Sleep Token - Take Aim Lyrics




Wait, won't you wait for me?
Don't you bathe in rivers?
Don't you feel alive?
And, when I see you waking up
And it sends me shivers
How you love like weapons kill

So take aim at me for once
Just take aim, break me apart

Call, won't you call out my name?
Like a curse on this world?
Like a battle cry?
And you make me hate myself
Make me tear my body
Make me yearn for your embrace

So take aim at me for once
Just take aim, break me apart love
Won't you?

You led me on when the moment is perfect
I will fire and forget till we both lay broken
And you know I'll be yours
Just want to be worth it
I will run like the wind till you follow me again

Sleep Token Take Aim Comments
  1. We Are The Empty

    Love showing this to people and watching their reaction as it comes right after the heaviest breakdown on the album (the end of “Higher”)

  2. JDM Ntegra

    The dislikes are probably the ones that after listening to this, they ended up in the “feels zone” 😂🙏 it’s okay.

  3. Casey Clarkson

    This gives me a Vancouver Sleep Clinic vibe. Love it!

  4. Markie Burnhope

    just take aim, @ me for once

  5. Markie Burnhope

    so take aim at me for once

  6. Markie Burnhope

    I've been zoning out playing the bodhran to this song tonight

  7. LilJon12

    Fuuuck why is this so good 😭

  8. Dixie Coil

    They were so amazing in Dallas, Tx last night! Worship. 🖤

    So take aim at me for once
    Just take aim, break me apart

  10. Ultranationalist

    I couldn't go to sleep without listening.

    Joy.

  11. AdrenLnFueledScholar

    Fucking wow..! Came here because of Kmac..! From the vocalist to the drummer!! This band kills it..!

  12. Fran Leal

    guys, you are fascinating!! <3

  13. Brandon FragJunkie

    If Tiny Tim started doing prog

  14. Marcus Aurelius

    Stunning

  15. TumbleDumpling

    KMac told me to check this out.

  16. lamarjohnson1981

    Kmac sent me here.

  17. Blankity Blank

    You're not wrong Kmac. This is fucking beautiful.

  18. fuck you

    This sounds like Christian music or something. Can't quite out my finger on it.

  19. Billy Sidness

    KMachiavelli sent me.

  20. Berserk Garage

    Kmac sent me here

  21. Morse Code Stutters

    KMac anyone?

  22. Thomas Sears

    reminiscent of a Metal Bon Iver... love it. And all the rest of course. Such dynamic vocals. And hail the drummer. Worship.

  23. GuitarsRockForever

    Not exactly my cup of tea, but kmac sent me so I have to check it out.

    Noah McGaffey

    for something more heavy (I imagine that's what you're looking for), higher or the offering have a great breakdown

    GuitarsRockForever

    @Noah McGaffey
    I do enjoy soft music, just not all. This just doesn't sound "right" to my taste.

    Noah McGaffey

    @GuitarsRockForever oh ok, the newer stuff is way more produced, I'd try feilds of elation or jericho on for size

    Adam McCann

    @Noah McGaffey ditto. I can't believe Kmac shared this song, instead of those ones

    Levi Lively

    @GuitarsRockForever listen to "The offering" that will satisfy you. And then you'll listen to absolutely every thing from them. Lol. That's the route I took. I actually accidentally stumbled onto them browsing music late one night. Then absolutely fell in love. Even got my wife loving them.

  24. Dalton Mitchum

    Who else is here because of kmac?

    Adam McCann

    Wait which song did Kmac mention? Because if he sent everyone to "The Offering" first that would make sense. But if he called out this song first that really surprises me.

    Gogu Omucupunga

    @Adam McCann Daddy Kmac wears their merch but I don't think he ever referenced the band directly.

    Adam McCann

    @Gogu Omucupunga thanks a bunch for explaining, I wasn't even expecting a reply on that

    Corey Walvatne

    Thanks so mich to him!!! Just luckily i liked "way that you were" bkz thats all he showed us and i may have never heard these mew tracks

    Corey Walvatne

    @Adam McCann he showed way that you are

  25. Ken Bernaynay

    W A R S H I P

  26. Sennstrato

    Very cool.

  27. Geraldo Rodriguew

    Thank u kmac

  28. Dan Deeg

    One listen and I smashed their CD with a hammer.

  29. Deceiver13

    fantastic music. I'm completely addicted to these songs.

  30. Jarrod Ehens

    So glad my friend introduced me to this band. So refreshing.

  31. Heavy Metal Buddha

    They really are doing what they claimed they would do and that was reflect on people’s emotions in their music. Hits like a damn nuke!

    W O R S H I P

  32. Yum yum

  33. Cristian Sosa

    Gracias por su fantastica musica♥

  34. luke bailey

    Love how the mood and atmosphere of each song perfecly fits the colour and visual, i just image going for a nice long walk on a warm spring day.

  35. Resifreak

    beautiful

  36. santan biswas

    *cries metal tears
    WORSHIP

  37. teh brockly

    Holy shit sleep token are truly a progressive band. Every song they bring something new and blow me away

    Big Guy

    I never thought about that. They really fit the definition of a prog band. They just dont fit any molds with any sound they go for. Its incredible

    teh brockly

    @Big Guy Right? They can be heavy like with The Offering and then hit you with something like this and it's still perfect

  38. Nick GUORD

    The offering was the only good one so far

    John Kuchler

    I feel bad for you for having that opinion

    memes yeet

    Sorry it's not your type of music. We're sad to see you go. .-.

  39. Jack Simpson

    I really do worship this band. Beautiful and brutal.

  40. tyler wright

    Best as i can tell here are the lyrics.

    Wait, won’t you wait for me?
    Don’t you bathe in rivers?
    Don’t you feel alive?
    And I, when I see you waking up
    And it sends me shivers,
    How you love like weapons kill.

    So take aim at me for once,
    Just take aim, break me apart.

    Call, won’t you call out my name?
    Like a curse that we spoke?
    Like a ballad out loud?
    And you make me hate myself,
    Make me tear my body,
    Make me ache for your embrace.

    So take aim at me for once,
    Just take aim, break me apart love.
    Won’t you?

    And you,
    You know I’ll be yours,
    When the moment is perfect.
    I will finally forget to be(we both lay broken)
    And you
    You know I’ll be yours,
    Just want to be worth it.
    I will run like the wind till you follow me again.

    Azreal677

    I think I hear the second line of the second verse as “like a cursed whisper”, which makes sense to me along with the next line, but I could be wrong.

    tyler wright

    John Kuchler i talk to texted this into my notes and then copy pasted it. I shouldve proof read first! Thank you.

    screaminjayhawksmoor

    call. won't you call out my name. like you curse at this world. like a battle cry.

    screaminjayhawksmoor

    you led me on. when the moment is perfect, i will fire and forget till we both lay broken. you led me on. just want to be worth it. i will run like the wind till you follow me again.

    John Kuchler

    screaminjayhawksmoor you might be right about that one, I just listened again and I thought he says “like a curse on this world” which is close to what you have

  41. Seth Poe

    Every song is better than the previous. Sleep Token is absolute perfection. WORSHIP.

    Dreamagain11

    That's like objectively not true.

  42. Black Oblivion

    1:19-1:29 lovely, very pleasing. Favorite part for me :)

    I can’t believe they’re actually coming to the States. I hope people actually show up for the openers on their tour with Issues and Polyphia

    timecrash

    I will be going in December in Orlando!! Going for ST and Polyphia...I will walk out before Issues though-noooo thanks.

    Mike Oglesby

    Issues is the "headliner"?

    timecrash

    @Mike Oglesby yeah :/

    J Shannon

    Issues isn’t my cup of tea either but their bassist is insanely good.

    Lupus Logos

    Universal: What genre of music do you make?
    Sleep Token: WORSHIP.

  53. Andrew Morin

    Vessel's vocals here are beautiful.
    WORSHIP!

  54. Solus E. Eclipse

    At this rate drop the album bruh lol

    John Kuchler

    Dreamagain11 for some bands this would be a bad strategy, however sleep token is releasing every song as a single so that each song gets the attention it deserves and their songs are good enough to justify it. Also, as a band, they’re more focused on letting people enjoy their music the way they want and not the way that will get them the most Spotify listeners when the album drops or something.

    memes yeet

    @millenliam there probably will be a couple new songs on the album that we haven't heard before then.

    BenPurdyDrums

    Considering in under 3 singles (6 weeks) they went up over 50,000 listeners on Spotify means this strategy IS working, and works AMAZINGLY for record sales, as well as the general numbers. Considering every single song of this record is a different world/vibe, it makes 100% logic that they give about 2 weeks to really enjoy the experience each song on it's own. Watch when this method starts being used by more and more bands.

    John Kuchler

    Jake S. No I’m pretty sure it’s 12 songs and they’re all being released as singles

    millenliam

    Jake S. all 12 songs will be released sequentially in advanced of the album release. However the special edition of the album will include exclusive elements such as early recordings. https://www.spinefarmrecords.com/usa/news/2019/06/21/sleep-tokens-debut-12-track-album-sundowning-out-november-21/

  55. Firstwake Recording

    This is amazing, truly a work of art.

  56. Craig Billow

    So much beauty and soul in this one. This is seriously shaping up to be a contender for AOTY. I can't even really form a response. Just wonderful. Worship 🙏

    Big Guy

    Even stacked up against all of the insane new albums coming out by big name bands, it really is shaping up that way

  57. Noah McCoy

    To describe you guys as a "metal" band is a disservice.

    Lupus Logos

    I think metal's been done so many disservices that there's the view of metal that you have.

    Noah McCoy

    @Lupus Logos uhhh wut?

    Big Guy

    @Noah McCoy
    I think what he means is that metal, as a genre, has been dealt so many disservices that it causes you, me and many others to struggle to indetify this band's sound as metal. Let alone calling metal a sound/style anymore. Its progressed so much since the early days that it just cant the genre cant be lumped together anymore without hurting the bands within it (to those who dont like metal).

  58. Dominique Shepard

    They just keep dropping hits. Love their range.

  59. Alluring Whispers

    oh, the graceful vocals of Vessel are truly staggering in this one. So unique, I'm blown away, I'm always looking forward to every other Thursday. Worship.

    @memes yeet no to be that guy, but there's very clear autotune and pitch correction involved

    @livid. Yeah no shit sherlock. .-. Most songs have autotune on them.
